A look at the funniest, most entertaining, and outrageous tweets from some of the biggest names in hip hop.
There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific lyrics tend to get overlooked (with the exception of the already infamous verse Kendrick dropped on Big Sean's "Control" this week). This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions.
Saturday Night Live performer and impressionist, Jay Pharaoh, was at last night’s ESPY awards and did a hilarious Jay-...sorry, Jay Z (no hyphen) impression as Jay the Sports Agent. He had some great lines poking fun at Jigga running Roc Nation Sports, and how he has split his time between what seems to be innumerable ventures. A couple of the gems were when he listed Jay’s accomplishme
Dissecting the foibles of the hip hop community as expressed in under 140 characters on Twitter. Not just used as a device to flood people's timelines with your new track, album, video, or clothing line, sometimes rappers truly channel the unfiltered interaction with fans. This week features Danny Brown, Chief Keef, 2 Chainz and more!
We now have the numbers for what was a monumental week in rap history, with Kanye West, J. Cole and Mac Miller all dropping their respective albums on June 18th. And Kelly Rowland.
Everyone was baby-faced at some point in their life. Rappers are no different. We decided to do some digging and found twenty-seven photos of various different rappers as the young'ns they once were. Albeit, some of these rappers are still young, but they're not THIS young anymore.
One of the most infamous events in Kanye's career is when he stormed the stage during the 2009 MTV VMA's after Taylor Swift's video beat out Beyonce's. Well, Jay-Z used an opportunity Sunday to poke fun at his Watch The Throne collaborator. The two won the Best Video award for the video of "Otis" off Watch The Throne.
It doesn't come as a surprise to know that the future of New York hip-hop looks extremely bright. Once the birthplace of rap, the city still harbors some of the best talent in the genre.
Bow Wow Neglects To Tell Child Support Judge About BET Deal, Says He Makes $4,000/Month Oct 2, 2012 at 04:26pm 18,921 Views
Bow Wow has some explaining to do to his baby mama, Joie Chavis. The rapper has been ordered to pay child support for his 1-year-old daughter, but he withheld crucial financial information from the judge.Bow Wow appeared in court on Monday, and after some bartering, he agreed to pay Chavis $3,000 a month in child support for their daughter, Shai.
Before you get on to reading, I feel a responsibility as this list's writer to inform the reading public that marijuana is bad. If you smoke it, you will get pregnant and/or die. That being said, if you do choose to smoke the devil's lettuce in honor of the Waldos, here are a few ground rules:
The Future hook is a powerful thing. It can single-handedly make a hit song, it can resurrect a career, it can even show up three times on a fake Carter V tracklist with no one batting an eye. The Future hook can be triumphant, vulnerable, melodic, punchy, sometimes all at the same... ok you get the idea.
Underrated Audio aims to provide you with some dope looks from the last seven days that flew under most peoples' radars. While they may have received front-page placement on HNHH, they didn't get as many views as they deserve, so we shine a little more light on them right here.
2013 wasn't just a good year for music, we also saw some great and memorable album covers. Artwork is an important aspect of any project, as art will likely draw a listener in off first glance and can also give you an idea of what's to come-- themes can often be represented in the art, but then again, sometimes art is drawn up for pure jokes-- both instances are seen in this countdown.
Eminem found his way back to #1 on the Billboard 200, after spending a week at #2. The rapper sold the same amount that some rappers do opening week (if not more) and he's in his third week on shelves with MMLP2.
First gaining recognition with a feature on the YMCMB crew track "Bedrock", Tyga has had a significant rise to fame over the years and has never looked back. Having released an independent album followed by two successful studio albums, the Compton native is surfing on the wave of success he's created along with his crew members Drake and Nicki Minaj.
Fame is a helluva drug for any celebrity. For some, it's a way of giving voice to a worthy cause. For others, it's a license to do and say whatever they feel or pursue any artistic path they choose. With The Weeknd, fame could be downright scary.
DJ Khaled has been behind some of the hottest records of the last few years and if there's one thing he's made consistently clear it's that he has a winning formula for hits. This is also his greatest fault. It's never been so clear how one dimensional DJ Khaled's music really is than here on Suffering From Success, the DJ's seventh studio album.
Cole World: The Sideline Story was considered somewhat of a disappointment to fans who really knew the raw talent that J. Cole posseses. The storyteller and the street smart rapper that fans loved was missing in his debut album. This time around Cole delivers a more cohesive project, with tracks easily flowing one by one to create a complete concept: Born Sinner.
The Smokers Club Tour has become an annual event, each year featuring a variety of smoke-worthy rappers. This year the headliners tapped are none other than "How High" duo, Method Man and Redman. Alongside the two veteran MCs, we'll see Mick Jenkins, B-Real of Cypress Hill and Taylor Gang's weed authority Berner.
Soooo, I was assigned an article about tracing the origin of a lot of the flows in hip hop to different regions around the country. Originally, I thought that would be fairly easy to do, and to a certain extent it is, but the article really went in a different direction the more research I was doing.
HOT97 Summer Jam XX Recap: Festival Village With Action Bronson, Joey Bada$$, A$AP Ferg & More! Jun 5, 2013 at 06:00pm 8,974 Views
The Festival Village stage was a special event for HNHH, as we actually served as a sponsor, and had our own tent at the show. So not only did we get to take in all the performances, but also had Kid Ink, A$AP Ferg, and Action Bronson stop by the tent for autographs and interviews.
Ghostface Killah’s new LP 36 Seasons comes to us just one week after the release of Wu-Tang Clan’s A Better Tomorrow. While the latter LP received lukewarm reviews due to questionably experimental tracks, 36 Seasons is the exact opposite. It is concise and precise, using that classic Wu sound to march along an incredible story line while The Revelations provide the production.
There's definitely been an influx of songs dedicated to rappers' favorite brands in the last year or two, but it's been happening forever. Whether it's the designer labels of Gucci, and Louis Vuitton, or casual sportswear like Nike or FILA, emcees have always made a point of shouting out what they wear. So without further ado, check out our list of 20 of the most memorable odes to brand names!
In the competition between the same-day release rappers Juicy J and Big Sean Juicy J appears to be taking the lead, although Sean debuted stronger than Juicy initially. Not to say they both haven't fallen quite a few spots-- they have. However Juicy J's fan base remains more persistent that Sean Don, with Stay Trippy selling another 21k at #15 and Hall Of Fame selling only 18k at #24.
This week Nicki reaches out to the Head of State, Big Sean talks "big", and Mac Miller gets "retarded". Check out the article's Twitter account here, where we post even more re-tweets. If you see any tweets by known rappers you think should be included then let us know @140BarsorLess 10. MAC MILLER
